Rising 5,000 feet above sea level like a skyscraper made of stone, Tower Butte is one of nature’s most unique formations. We at Papillon have discovered that this incredible desert feature is the perfect setting for a helicopter landing. Join us on our Tower Butte Landing Tour for an exclusive sightseeing experience offering 360-degree views from the top of the world.
From the Page Municipal Airport, you’ll board a state-of-the-art EcoStar helicopter and fly eastward over the land of the Navajo Nation and Lake Powell before Tower Butte begins to come into sight. Experience the breathtaking approach to the top of this mammoth natural tower before touching down and disembarking the aircraft.
The 360-degree panoramic view available atop this landform is absolutely breathtaking. See desert gems including Glen Canyon, Lake Powell, the Kaiparowits Plateau, the Grand Staircase, and the Vermillion Cliffs. You’ll enjoy approximately 20 minutes atop the butte for sensational photo opportunities and information about the Navajo culture and the long history of their land. This helicopter tour is a truly sightseeing opportunity unlike any other!
